Phoenix, Arizona-based Lectric eBikes is launching a new folding step-through bike that looks like the perfect blend of compact without sacrificing ride quality for full-sized humans.
The Lectric XP Step-Thru builds on the success of the Lectric XP with a lower standover height to make getting on and off easier. It has an impressive rider carrying capacity of 275 pounds (124.7 kg) and a rear rack cargo capacity of 55 pounds (25 kg).
What makes it all work is the 20″ x 4″ tires that give the bike a robust base and a bit of cushion without having to go full bore with suspension. The massive tires of the new step-through, which launches in September at an introductory price of $899, underpin a robust but compact folding frame.
At just under $900, quality is the biggest question when it comes to Lectric bikes, but it seems to have things on lock. LG batteries underpin the electric side of the game, while Shimano and Tektro components handle the human side of the contribution.
At just over 1 year old, Lectric eBikes was born when co-founders Levi Conlow and Robby Deziel noticed a gap in the market for an affordable e-bike built with quality components. Apparently, consumers also saw this gap, as they flocked to the brand.
Since launching in May 2019, the duo has sold more than 15,000 e-bikes.
